Kansas man pleads not guilty in pregnant woman’s death
Wichita A south-central Kansas man pleaded not guilty to two counts of premeditated first-degree murder in the deaths of a pregnant woman and her fetus.
Twenty-one-year-old Bryant Seba of Pratt will go to trial Sept. 29. He’s charged with killing 22-year-old Alexandria Duran and her fetus, and with attempted premeditated first-degree murder in the shooting of 28-year-old Brandon Wright, who was paralyzed in the shooting.
The Wichita Eagle reports testimony at Seba’s preliminary hearing indicated there were several racially charged confrontations between Duran’s house and Seba’s house. In July, Duran and her uncle intervened in a fight that involved Seba, who is white, and Wright, who is black.
Authorities allege Seba went into his home, got a rifle and fired nine shots into a group of people.
